This is my 5th year at Byng High School, and my 3rd year teaching theatre classes. I currently teach competitive speech, stagecraft, and drama. I'm also the FCA sponser for Byng High School.
From 2002-2005, I taught K-3 music in Purcell. In 2005, I stopped teaching public school after my first child was born. From 2005-2012 I was a stay at home mom, worked in a day-care, was a nanny, had a licensed home day care, and was a children's pastor (not all at the same time). And in 2012, when my youngest son, at the time, started Pre-k, I began working at Byng High School.
In 2002, the same year I graduated college and began teaching, I met and married Sid Griffin. We have 4 children who simultaniously are the joys of my life and make me lose my mind. Elijah, my oldest, is a 10th grader at Byng High School. He is a super genious. Ezekiel, my wild man, is a 6th grader at Byng Elementary this year. And then we have our little Ezra. Ezra is in PreK at Francis. And Eden, our baby, is one year old and is beautiful, sassy, and a precious answered prayer. Our family pets include our old Dutch Shepherd, Possum; our 8 year old mutt, Coon; our 3 year old rescue Albino Boston Terrier, Jack; and our new baby manx kitty.
When I'm not teaching or having rehearsals or at speech competition or doing a school fund raiser, I'm usually spending time with my husband and kids or helping at church.
